If you cannot get into windows to delete file,then try either running scanreg restore or booting from startup floppy and deleting from DOS.

If i may further to Chegs comment,you are running the max ram for W98 infact i found W98 would hang
using 512mb i used 374mb i assume your using SDR on an old computer.

Try this Start Computer keep pressing F5 for Safe Mode, Now if you can get in go to Start\Run type MSCONFIG press enter go to startup tab and remove all exept System Tray, Windows will not run without it. Restart and see if it will go to Normal Windows, If it does Go to Start\Shut Down\choose shut down to DOS at C:\WINDOWS> type

SCANREG /RESTORE choose a old dat before the Problem

It is better to Post hear, Rather than E-Mail s others can do a search after or get help with there problem if it's the same as yours. But if you E.Mail the whole point of the HelpRoom as been lost.

Did you try what I said above? As this will take your Registry back to the time before you tried loading Java. As long as you have not rebooted to windows too many times as it only keeps five backups of the registry.

If you let us know and it did not work, something else can be tried.

I have given the computer to a friend who is going to do what you have suggested and look at a few other things to. I think I have twinkered about with too many things hence the problem. Ill know over the next few days.

Thanks to all who have given your suggestions.
